Aces and Faces

Introduction
For those who enjoy video poker, this could be an interesting option. The game is played similarly as regular Jacks and Better poker, but with a few extra twists. The screen presentation is quite simple and clear, the game is played with a standard 52-card deck, which means with every hand, cards are eliminated from the possibilities, which gives players the upper hand with strategizing. The screen presents players with five cards, one of which is over turned and then the player is to click on the next card to revel the rest of the hand. There are tabs which give the player options as to what cards they will choose to hold during the game. The cards are then held and the others dealt again. The point is to get the strongest hand, and there are no wild cards. As the name of the game indicates, the payouts for this game occur on cards that are face cards or aces, but that’s not exactly all.

How to Play

Aces and Faces has quite a lot of implementable strategy available for new players. While there are still payouts for lower ranking pairs, straights, and flushes, the game also recognizes four of a kind, which means four cards in the same suit. It is recommended players avoid breaking up a winning hand unless you have four of the five cards for a Royal Flush, which makes it worth taking the risk. In case you are dealt a hand that won’t yield winnings, the following combinations are ones to look out for to create a chance to get the highest payout: 1) You should look for four of a kind, a straight flush, or a royal flush. 2) Look for three cards of the same suit, a flush, straight, or a full house. 3) Two pairs of matching cards. 4) A high pair, which means a pair of cards that are Jacks or higher. 5) A low pair, which is a pair of cards that is lower in value than a Jack. 6) Two high cards of matching suit. 7) Three cards to create a straight flush. 8) Two cards that don’t have the same suit but are both still high in rank. 9) Jacks or Better. 10) Clear away your hand and begin again.
These strategies should help players beginning their ventures into Aces and Faces.

2 Ways Royal

Introduction
For those looking for something a bit different than standard versions of poker, but without the extra gimmicks that can be a bit much, the 2 Ways Royal Video Poker might suit their tastes. The goal of the game, as with all poker games, is to make the best hand possible with the cards received. (The game is played with one standard deck of 52 cards.) However, the difference with this adaptation of online poker is that there’s a small twist that isn’t available in other versions. A Lo Royal Flush, which a set of cards increasing in value ‒ 2-3-4-5-6- and of the same suit. This is what gives the game its intriguing title. The crown images and golden font in the design of the game further this theme.

How to Play

Playing is rather simple if you know how to play poker. Again, the object of the game is to get the best hand from the cards you are dealt, while keeping the Lo Royal Flush in mind. Players meet their bets by adjusting the value at the bottom of the screen. Bets range from .50 to 5 euros, and there are five cards laid out on the table. Above the cards is a table that has the values for all of the types of wins that are available. These include the High Royal Flush, the Lo Royal Flush, the Straight Flush, the Full House or Four of a Kind. Players can also win with Three of a Kind, a Flush, a Straight, as well as Two Pairs and Jacks or Better, each with their respective values. To start the game, adjust your bets first. Players can choose to play either for fun or with real money. To begin the game, just hit the ‘Deal’ tab and then see what cards you’ve been given. Once there, players have the option of which cards they’d like to hold, after which the cards are dealt again. Should a player receive a winning hand, they have the option of gambling the win on a double or a split double bet. The double bet begins after it’s selected. Then five new cards are dealt, with one facing up. The player then clicks on the first down-facing card to see the rest of the hand.
The bet amount is on the upper right hand of the screen, while the win amount is kept track of on the right side of the screen. There is no soundtrack other than small digital effects that signify wins.

Vegas Single Deck Blackjack

Introduction
Vegas Single Deck Blackjack is exactly as it sounds ‒ blackjack played with one deck of cards. This is generally uncommon except in Las Vegas, where the game originated. The object of the game is to get as close to a value of 21 as possible without ‘busting’ or going over. A player can ‘hit’, or take a new card, or ‘stand’ which means that they’re satisfied with their hand and will wait to see what the dealer gets. As is the case in Vegas-style black jack, should the dealer land on a soft 17, which means a 17 made up with more than two cards, they will have to hit again. This increases the odds in favour of the player. If the dealer lands on a hard 17, which is when the value is reached via two cards only, they will stand. The cards are worth their numerical value, with the exclusion of name cards and aces. Aces are worth either 1 or 11, while named cards are worth 10.

Game play

The game allows players to buy insurance prizes against a dealer holding a possible winning hand. The insurance costs half of the amount of the wager placed on the bet. The game is styled with whole cards, which means that one card is exposed, while the other is overturned. The player receives two cards face up while the dealer will receive one facing up and one facing down. Players can split their hands should they get two cards of the same or relatively high value. The game is played at a 3:2 ratio, which is better than the 5:6 offered by some casinos. The 3:2 offers a higher payout rate of two dollars for every three that are bet.

The layout of the game is straightforward. The design is that of a blackjack table with tabs that allow players to adjust betting amounts, chips placed, and offer strategies and rules for the game. One of the strategies is to notice that there are more 10-point cards than any other kind of card in a deck, which means that it’s helpful to keep an eye out for the hands to guess the odds. For more specific strategies, it helps to do some reading or to check out the game’s rules tab. A good game for those starting out.
